From personal experience, this usually happens when a guy and girl have some sort of history, whether it be verging on romantic or it stayed platonic--but it was in a gray, not-ever-defined way. As long as there were no extremely hard feeling and everyone was mature about it, I suppose it's possible but let's get specific. If the guy is dating someone else, new girlfriend or went back to an ex, why does he still want to be friends with the girl he rejected? Does he just want to keep the other girl as an option? Are there any feelings involved at all? WHAT DOES IT MEAN
Can you just be friends if there were "feels" involved? Is this a compliment or nah...

If you're asking because you feel like you're the only one who has feelings like this, you're wrong. Everyone finds these things difficult and maybe he is just trying to be nice. He may want to keep you as an option. He may really find you to be a good person and someone to keep in his life because you make it better. There are ten thousand reasons this can happen and all you can do is be a friend and if you feel like the situation has become an issue, then tell him and move on. Don't worry about problems that haven't happened yet and just enjoy the people you are around while you have them0

Because they usually expect her to change her mind, which is totally stupid in my opinion.0
